Keen listeners of Kauai over the weekend — the 7 track surprise EP and side 2 of Childish Gambino’s new project S T N M T N / Kauai — noticed that the “Beach Picnic” version of “3005” featured only the hook and the instrumental. Well, the interwebs have since uncovered the hidden track upon the EP’s purchase — the full, complete version with completely new verses than that of an original. As you’d suspect, this provides a fresh twist on the universally appealing single.

“It’s a Gangsta Grillz mixtape that goes into an EP. The Gangsta Grillz mixtape is a dream, and the dream ends when I wake up in Kauai. And they go into each other; it’s one complete project. You can download the mixtape and you can go buy the EP. The money from the EP goes to help keeping Kauai clean.”
– Childish Gambino
My *Tibs Favs. — “Sober”, “Pop Thieves”, & “The Palisades” f/ Christian Rich (the fav of the faves). Also listen to the hidden track with new verses on “3005”.
Gambino surprises on this Sunday with a new song release, though it really doesn’t feel like a surprise given his recent mixtape announcement of stnmtn/Kauai. “Sober”, he says is “from kauai side.” and finds him droppin’ some smooth singing. I gotta sit with this more, but it sounds good on first listen. Also note the artwork “with Jaden Smith as ‘The Boy'”. Hmm…
